Lakeview – Otto Raymond Hey, age 49, of Stanton, passed away unexpectedly, on October 13, 2016, at his home. Otto was born October 25, 1966 in Alma, Michigan, the son of Otto “Dale” and Sharon (McConkie) Hey. He was raised in Stanton on the family farm and graduated from Lakeview High School Class of 1984, where he participated in FFA. Otto then attended Michigan State University for two years completing the Ag Program.
He was self employed working on the farm and part owner of Dale Hey and Son Trucking in Lakeview. He really enjoyed working beside his dad. Otto and his dad never had an argument while they worked, and lived, shoulder to shoulder. They had a lot of discussions and agreed to disagree, and all went well. His other hobbies included flying, antique tractors, spending time with family, especially his Grandmother Hey – watching movies while Grandma slept in her chair.
